We will add them as we get them, with a few snarky tweets to add flavor:

Georgia governor's race: Nathan Deal (R) with 64% and Jason Carter (D) with 34%, but only 1% of the expected vote is in, so too early to call.

Anitfracking movement in PA:

  • John Kasich projected as winner in Ohio gubernatorial race.
  • NBC calls West Virginia for Republican Shelley Moore Capito.
  • NBC say North Carolina and Georgia are still too close to call.
  • 22% of FL votes in now with Crist (D) 55% and Scott (R) 40%
  • No finals yet, but with 17% votes in @ABC News reporting FL Gov race as Crist (D) 57% vs Scott (R) 39%
  • Incumbent Republican Senator Tim Scott just become the first black American elected to statewide office in South Carolina.
  • CNN projects Mitch McConnell with 55% to Alison Grimes' 42%.
  • Lindsey Graham projected as winner in South Carolina, no numbers yet.
